The Latest and Greatest Smart Home Gadgets 

Smart Homes are the future. You can already control Wi-Fi-connected light switches, outlets, thermostats, cooking appliances, security systems, and more from your smartphone anywhere, anytime. However, connecting all of these appliances takes up a lot of bandwidth, which might make your internet slower if you’re using a cable or DSL network.

A fiber broadband network gives you fast upload and download speeds for uninterrupted video capabilities like security systems, the bandwidth to run multiple smart home devices (plus stream, work, and game at the same time), and reliability to run all your home appliances without worry of the connection dropping. Not only is Luminate’s fiber broadband fast and affordable, setting up your home on smart devices will also save you money on your electricity bill — win-win!

We wrote a whole post about all of the ways connected homes can make your life easier. Once you have all the smart home basics, you can start checking out the latest and greatest gadgets in-home connectivity. From health insights to observing nature and cooking the perfect dinner, these gadgets are the most innovative in smart home connectivity.
